Drink Orange Juice Daily To Prevent Stroke And Heart Attack.
Surprising health benefits of orange juice
Drinking orange juice daily may cut your risk of deadly strokes by almost a quarter, suggests a study. The study, published in the British Journal of Nutrition, showed that people who consumed the juice each day saw a reduction in the risk of a brain clot by 24 percent, the Daily Mail reported. Further, the rates of heart disease were also reduced in regular drinkers, who were 12 to 13 percent less likely to suffer from damaged arteries.
Sugar here is not evil!
Fresh fruit juices have long been thought of as healthy. But consumers in recent years have been put off by warnings over their high sugar content. The researchers noted that the health benefits in terms of stroke prevention could outweigh the risks of sugar content.
Orange juice protects the blood vessels.
It’s not just orange juice that has this benefit, other fruit juices also appear to cut the risk. Juice is thought to contain many of the naturally-occurring plant substances found in whole fruit that can protect blood vessels against disease.
240 ml of orange juice provides approximately:
Vitamin C: 67% of the RDI (Reference Daily Intake)
Protein: 2 grams
Carbs: 26 grams
Potassium: 10% of the RDI
Orange juice is packed with vitamin C which is vital for the function of the healthy immune system and also keeps you protected from cold, flu, and other inflammatory diseases.
Reduces high blood pressure.
The antioxidant Hesperidin present in orange juice protects the body against various cancers and diseases. However, another function of this water-soluble plant compound is to impart a smooth functioning of small blood vessels.
Prevents kidney stones
Orange juice has a high concentration of citric acid and citrates, which are believed to help reduce the risk of kidney stones. The risk of the formation of kidney stones can be reduced by taking orange juice regularly.
Helps in weight loss
Regular consumption of orange juice helps in cutting down the extra pounds as it is incredibly low in calories and has zero fat.
Orange juice may help decrease inflammation, which could help reduce your risk of chronic disease due to its anti-inflammatory properties. Consuming orange juice can help ward off metabolic syndrome that can lead to complications such as type 2 diabetes.
Prevents skin damage
Orange juice is packed with antioxidants that help in protecting the skin from free radical damage known to cause signs of aging. Vitamin C in orange juice plays a role in the formation of collagen, which gives our skin that youthful look.
